Listen to a sample from Sweet Nomad Girl mp3

Abdul Wahab Madadi is one of Herat's best-loved and most renowned singers of traditional Afghan folk music. Recorded live in a rare UK appearance at the Semley Music Festival in August 2004 , Abdul Wahab Madadi joins forces with Veronica Doubleday and John Baily to perform a collection of beautiful and vivid songs and dances, capturing the essence of love and vitality central to ancient and modern Afghan culture. Madadi's importance as a singer was signified when, on the fall of the Taliban in 2001, it was his patriotic song Watan ("Homeland") that was the first piece of music to be broadcast on Radio Afghanistan after five years of music being banned.
